The reality is that we live in a fast paced city. We often get too caught up in the daily rush to slow down and just enjoy the ride. We choose the “ordinary” local rides, rarely exploring some of the great rides the NYC area can truly offer. In 2007, Rapha created the Continental program with one goal in mind: travel this incredible country and find roads seldom ridden, explore some of the little known wonders and some hidden gems in our own backyards.
Starting today we would like to invite you to our New York City studio and offer up a unique look at local rides less traveled.
In the spirit of the Rapha Continental we challenge you to pick up a cue sheet for one of 3 exciting rides. Each has been hand-selected to showcase the beauty and challenging terrain that the New York City area can offer. All you need to do is search a little bit for something new.
River Road / 37 Miles / 1916′ Elevation / New York, NY
NE Gravel / 74 Miles / 2972′ Elevation / Mt. Kisco, NY
Bear Mountain Loop / 119 Miles / 5157′ Elevation / New York, NY
We would invite all of you to come try one of our Signature Cycles / Rapha rides. Que sheets are available at our NYC Studio.
Please check back in the next few weeks to see reports from of each of these rides, including stories and photos!
